Palliative and Hospice Care
Pets with life-limiting conditions present a very special set of patients and circumstances. Cancer especially is unique in its ability to have a negative impact on quality of life, but on the other hand pet owners are often surprised to learn of our ability to combat it. Palliative care, however, uses the tools and resources at our disposal to minimize pain and discomfort without attempting to achieve cure of disease. Through a combination of in-hospital treatments, phone consults, and at-home visits, including for humane euthanasia when the need exists, we are uncompromising in our desire to help pet owners and allow their pet to live, and encounter death, with the greatest of grace and dignity.
